A representative from CJ E&M confirmed on May 16, “Jung Joon Young will most likely sign an exclusive contract with us. Although he has not signed anything yet. The details will be determined over the weekend and we will have something more solid to talk about by the beginning of next week.”
Previously, CJ E&M denied any rumors of possibly signing with Jung Joon Young.
Last year, Jung Joon Young was one of the top 3 contestants of Mnet “Super Star K4.” After he was eliminated, he tried to sign a contract with CJ E&M and release a single through their incubating system, but his previous contract with another agency was still in effect. However, he recently nullified the previous contract, freeing him to sign another exclusive contract with any agency.
Jung Joon Young garnered much attention on “Super Star K4” with his unique character and exceptional talent. Recently, he became a radio DJ with Roy Kim, the winner of “Super Star K4,” hosting MBC radio show “Chin Chin Radio” together.
